Accounting Systems Set Up

Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of selected accounting software (e.g. Aplos, Araize)
  • Training and guidelines on how to manage system and generate basic reports
Additional Details

We have Quickbooks online and need guidance on setting up/revising the appropriate categories for our nonprofit, reconciling items, and completing IRS form 990 in May 2020.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Quickbooks Online, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have links to bank account, credit cards, invoices, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,409 , allowing us to focus on providing services and sharing our products in the field

We are striving to move our nonprofit from a fledgling startup to its next stage of development and good accounting practices are essential.
